    Well, those willows of yours sure did well. How often do you prune them? We generally prune them every five years here.

    I just know that you are going to be able to harvest lots of switches to play with. I hope that the weather there is soon good enough for you to work in, for I am anxious to see what you come up with.

    While you are building Hurdles from nature's bounty, we're using huge garbage containers for storage of "unsightly" objects. In the beginning, our garden area had tons of wild Grapevine growing along the creek. I used some of it to create wreaths and such for Shower prizes. The rest was tossed onto the creek bank. I wonder if it took root and will grow and return to annoy me?
    Your Bride and you are very creative. Lovely work and so useful.
